Barche da pesca a riposo su mari azzurre - Sorrento Marina Grande
"Fishing boats resting on the azure seas - Sorrento Marina Grande"...
Fishing boats dream in exuberant anticipation of the early morning’s voyage, with the Bay of Naples in the distant background, and the Bellissimo sunset illuminating the azure seascape. My second evening in Sorrento, about the time I finally learned how to drive a car alongside the very crazed Vespa riders who have absolutely no rules for the road, I stumbled upon Sorrento’s most famous Marina Grande. Grande means big, but it’s just a diminutive fishing village; hardly substantial, but authentically picturesque. Marina Grande was a Godsend that evening as it supported all of the qualities a tired and hungry artist was looking for: sunset, sea, sand, boats, skies, and great seafood. Did I say seafood? Arriving around 8:00 PM, just in time for theatrical sunset images, and leaving after dinner around midnight, the Marina was authentically Grande! The difficulty in photographing water vessels in low light is the movement of the boat in the water causing “ghosting” of the image. I was fortunate to have advanced technology, reliable balance, and the hand of God keeping the boats tranquil for my long exposures. And, yes, a final reward as Marina Grande non ha deluso (did not disappoint) as the seafood was “eccezionale” (exceptional)!
